Hazards Description


Several areas within the building either contain radioactive materials or experience
radioactive fields. These areas are identified by a distinctive "Radiation Area" sign on
the entry. To enter such an area, you must either be escorted or have received radiation
worker training. You should also read and follow the requirements listed on the signs.

Building 203 houses the ATLAS and Dynamitron facilities. Their locations are shown here.
Both facilities house accelerators which may be the source of prompt
radiation. Both facilities also use SF6 as an insulating gas. SF6 is an asphyxiant.

Compressed gasses are also used in several places within the building. The building
has a compressed gas storage area where both filled and empty compressed gas
cylinders are kept.
